Warre's Vintage Port 2016

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalWarre 2016 is 46/37 mix of touriga nacional and touriga franca and just under half of that is from old inter-planted vineyards. The nose is broad and highly expressive offering floral violets, and when the sweet, black, smoky fruit hits your palate it is almost overwhelming. This is a more hedonistic style that offers charm and elegance over power and complexity, at least for the moment. The finish is softer and shorter than the top wines, but this is a fine, mid-term, 20-year port in my estimation.Tasted: 23 May 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 96.00 en primeur $92 / release $110 ON 82.00 Vintages AB 70.00 fine wine shops NF 85.00 QC 86.00 BC 46.00 375 en primeur $46 / release $57 Producer: Symington Family Estates - Warre & CaDistributors: The Bacchus Group Inc.
